Last night, we grilled a couple of Mahi Mahi filets and uncorked a bottle of Paul Mas Estate Picpoul de Pinet. The wine comes from Languedoc, which is a wine region in the south of France. Languedoc is known for producing some great values and Paul Mas Estate 2011 Picpoul de Pinet definitely delivers a great QPR!
This Picpoul de Pinet opens up with a melody of tropical and citrus aromas. On the palate, the wine is refreshing and vibrant. There are tastes of lemon, lime, grapefruit and slate with a creamy mid-palate and zingy acidity. Simple drinking and easy to enjoy with a variety of foods! (13% alcohol, $10)
My Wine Rating – B+
Food Pairing Suggestions – Pair with oysters, Mahi Mahi or a salad topped with strawberries and goat cheese.
